Event - Learn how to build picture of the past (Nottingham)

DO you want to discover more about a building or place where your ancestors lived?

A workshop is being held at Nottingham Local Studies Library to help people find out how to build up a clearer picture of where their relatives lived in bygone years by using maps, electoral registers, census returns and photographs.

It will be a practical workshop which uses case studies based on a street in the Meadows and the local pub at Colston Bassett to show how it is possible to build up a picture of a place and its inhabitants over a period of time.

Although the examples used are local, the principles learned can be used for finding the history of places in other parts of the country.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday January 17, from 10am to 4pm at Nottingham Central Library, Angel Row.

Booking is essential as places are limited. The cost is £15, with a £5 deposit.
